  • Mayhew was recently engaged by Bell Media’s advertising sales division to create an office space that would house all their advertising sales teams as well as a presentation centre.

    The mandate for the six-floor project was to create an office that spoke to the brand identity of these groups while creating the workplace of the future, one that reflected a healthy work environment, efficiency of space, flexibility, and collaboration. The new design was to have a creative edge that encouraged employees to engage in a fun environment. This vision was achieved through innovative floor layouts, fun architectural details, and staging with accessories like yoga balls and bean bag chairs. Additionally, select Out-of-Home furniture, including a transit shelter, was brought inside the office space as a unique way to showcase some of the company’s past campaigns.

    The project was to be completed from start to finish within six months, an aggressive schedule. The key was having a cohesive team and working relationships with the tradespeople on site. Once the overall design concept and floor space was finalized, Mayhew’s furniture solutions team ensured the existing furniture components that were re-deployed worked well within the new space. The gaps were then filled with new Steelcase furniture.
